Tuesday Tell-All

Tuesday Tell-All

*While I was loading pictures onto the computer, I somehow got the feeling that Matt got a hold of my camera when he was bored…

*I wish it would stop snowing so that I could go and get my run out of the way already.

*Remember these cookies that I made for Valentine’s Day? Well, Matt and I just couldn’t stop thinking about them (or drooling about them), so I decided to change it up a little and do a devil’s food cake mix instead of red velvet, and then half the shortening amount and add an egg (the best trick ever for cutting down on the fat in recipes–thanks, Mom!). And you know what? I think they’re even more amazing the second time around. I think I’m going to have to start stocking up on a lot more cake mixes…

*Speaking of changing things up, I miss doing my Change It Up Challenges. I haven’t forgotten about them, I just have been so busy with everything, between student teaching and training for a marathon and all. I feel like training for this marathon is one of the biggest “CIU Challenges” I’ve done in my whole life, so that’s probably where the CIUs will be limited to for now. But come summer, I fully plan on starting those up again. A girl just needs a little change every now and then, eh? You should give me some ideas about what I should try out. Except sushi. I don’t want to try that.

*Matt and I will be watching The Bachelor tonight, but we kind of don’t want to. The magic was lost when our favorite contestant got voted off last week. Stupid.

*We’re going home to Bountiful this weekend for the first time in a month and a half. I’m excited! We have been seriously Settlers [of Catan]-deprived these past several weeks.

*The sun is shining outside, and it’s snowing. Love that!

*After putting it off for weeks and weeks, I have finally started to read the novel that I’ll be teaching to my class. I mean, we don’t start the unit until the day after tomorrow, so it’s not like I’ve procrastinated too bad, right? Right? Actually, I think that I might extend our poetry unit until Friday and just start the book on Monday. This decision of course has nothing to do with my own laziness…

*I think it’s harder for me motivation-wise to run 3 days a week instead of every day. Why is that?

*Anybody know the names of any good (and preferably cheap) piano tuners that serve the Logan area?

*I have an odd hankering to watch the movie Matilda. Maybe because I recently saw it in Walmart’s $5 bin…

*I went to donate plasma last night thinking that it closed at 8, and it ended up closing at 7. Considering that I got there at 7:10, I was a little put out. It was a sad day.

*It’s been almost six months since I’ve changed my hair, and I’m itching for another change. So now the real question is–do I go darker, or do I go for highlights?
